Palmer faces a tough task this weekend as the Houston Texans have given up the fewest passing yards in the NFL this season. Given the fact that he's sporting a below-average passer rating of 72.4 and has 14 interceptions to just 10 touchdown passes, he is going to need more than just an extra week off to put together a strong campaign against them.
While he's going to have a rested backfield lending its support, Palmer is going to need to step things up in the aerial attack and find some sort of weakness in the Texans defense. They're holding teams to just 158 passing yards per game and own a pass rush that has delivered 20 sacks for a total of 114 yards lost, so he's definitely got his work cut out for him.
